Luck to speak at RCCAC

West Virginia University Athletics Director Oliver Luck will speak at 1:30 p.m. Monday at the Randolph County Community Arts Center’s presentation of the Smithsonian Institution’s traveling exhibit, “Hometown Teams.” This lecture was originally scheduled for 3 p.m., but has been moved up to 1:30 p.m.

Luck’s career has spanned from his days as quarterback for the WVU Mountaineers (1978-1981), to being an NFL quarterback for the Houston Oilers, to receiving a JD degree from University of Texas Law School, and later to coaching professional sports teams such as Germany’s Frankfurt Galaxy and Rhein Fire. Luck was also named to the post of president of the Houston Dynamo Major League Soccer team.

Hired as athletic director at WVU in 2010, Luck has instituted a number of changes to the school’s programs, including the move to the Big 12, and the promotion of Dana Holgorsen to head coach of the football team.

Doors open for this free event at 1 p.m., and everyone is encouraged to attend.

The Randolph County Community Arts Center, a non-profit organization promoting and supporting the arts in Randolph County and surrounding areas, is located at the corner of Randolph Avenue and Park Street in Elkins. This exhibit is made possible by the West Virginia Humanities Council, First Energy Corporation, Elkins Fordland, Friends of the West Virginia Symphony and the Randolph County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
